Bulk food transport service provider Abbey Logistics Group has appointed Tony Kenny as operations director.

Kenny is described as having broad experience in logistics and has held senior roles in some of the UK’s largest logistics companies spanning sectors including food, retail, consumer, FMCG and chemicals.

Steve Granite, chief executive at Abbey Logistics Group, said the company was delighted to have someone of Kenny’s calibre on the team.

"The importance of this role cannot be underestimated as we pride ourselves on our service delivery for our customers, he said.

“Tony’s drive for continuous improvement will exceed our customers’ expectations and further strengthen our reputation as a flexible, reliable, customer-focused organisation.”

Kenny will be responsible for the day-to-day running of operations across Abbey’s three divisions: bulk powder logistics, bulk liquid logistics and the warehousing and distribution service.

Kenny said he was excited to be joining the company.

“I have joined Abbey Logistics at a tremendously exciting time; the new ownership structure combined with the ‘can-do’ positive outlook of the team and a dedication to take problems away from customers were among the key reasons I was drawn to the company,” he said.

“I believe I can make a real and lasting impact on the way Abbey interacts with its customers and the service it provides.”
